    Originally, the entire work rose from Post Script, popular on the college posts. Currently it splays so badly that I just abandoned it, my Team Lead says it runs well on Linux.

    Cannot see the reply, but what the reply intends to convey is that pdf is often a proprietary work of Adobe. To the extent that it is not, I suggest struggling with open web searches on academic sites.

    My efforts have not been able to detect a simple file format for pdf, there are File Format websites that will help.

    File encoding is another matter, Java uses UTF-16 or some variant thereof. See Joel Spolsky
